Bangkok joined UNICEF in celebrating World Children's Day 2022 by going blue
The city of Bangkok joined UNICEF and the rest of the world in turning blue in celebration of World Children’s Day on 20 November.
Joining UNICEF’s global Go Blue campaign, Bangkok’s iconic landmark Chong Nonsi Skywalk was lit up blue to show the city’s support for child rights and mark the 30th anniversary of Thailand’s ratification of the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
Every year since 1954, World Children’s Day promotes the welfare of children around the world and is UNICEF’s annual day of action for children, by children. The date also marks the UN General Assembly’s adoption of the Declaration of the Rights of the Child in 1959 as well as the Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1989.
In the past few years, famous landmarks from around the world joining the campaign include the Eiffel Tower in France, Chichen Itza in Mexico and hundreds of historic buildings in India.
UNICEF promotes the rights and wellbeing of every child, in everything we do. Together with our partners, we work in 190 countries and territories to translate that commitment into practical action, focusing special effort on reaching the most vulnerable and excluded children, to the benefit of all children, everywhere.
